    Can anyone give me any information on the Free Masons?

    I will be appreciative of any information or if you can guide me to a hub about them. I have read books and searched the internet, but I will take anything I can get. I want to know everything I possibly can on the subject.

    "Seek and ye shall find."
    Numerous web-sites are out there.  The Scottish Rite temple web-site is one good site.  To the public, this temple is probably best known as one of the sites in Dan Browns 'Lost Symbol' (or maybe it was Angels and Demons).
    The Fredericksburg lodge also hosts a web-site.  This lodge is known for having George Washington as one of its early members.

      Thank you. I have checked the internet but I'll try looking up The Scottish Rite. Thanks for the tip.

    Not really but I can tell you a true story. A couple Halloweens back we attended a production of Dracula at a Scottish Rites Masonic Temple in downtown Asheville North, Carolina. The production was very good. Getting a look in the building was priceless!

    It was all very art deco era over the top with lots of ornate Masonic symbolism worked into every inch of the architecture and decor. While talking to the cast after I asked an actor "Who was your artist for the backdrops? They were amazing!" He got really close and whispered. "They were already here. They were perfect so we decided to use them!"

    That's right, Dracula's castle in the Carpathian mountains, dungeon scenes, crazy torture chambers, the creepy sanitarium- all those picture perfect like better than the movie backdrops were already hanging there in situ waiting for this troop of actors to decide to do Dracula on Halloween and get special permission from the Masons who had never opened the building to the public before. BEST HALLOWEEN EVER!!!

    The Masons are a secret fraternal organization. A Mason will always recognize another Mason by the secretive handshake. The book one must memorize is written in code and is part of the initiation process. Under no circumstances is alcohol ever allowed on the premises of a Masonic Temple. You cannot join the Masons unless you are invited into the fellowship. Women can't be Masons, but they can be members of the Eastern Star. In order to be a Shriner, you must first go through the degree work of Masonry.

      Many other myths abound.

      FitnezzJim - I wasn't referring to myths. I was citing facts.Without tipping my hat, suffice to say, I know exactly what I am talking about.
